Sweet Potato, Ricotta, Brown Butter and Sage Pizza: Adapted from Feast by Sarah Copeland I Rainbow Delicious

For my birthday my friend Janine gifted me the beautiful Feast Cookbook by Sarah Copeland. I’ve had my eye on the sweet potato, brown butter and sage pizza recipe in it for a while now and finally got around to making it last night. I love the concept of the pizza but I adapted it slightly by using ricotta instead of yogurt and leaving out the lime. I used my mandoline slicer to cut the sweet potatoes and loved how thin and pretty they looked. My husband was out of town and I’m a little embarrassed to admit this but over the course of the night I ate the entire pizza by myself! So obviously… I liked it. My sister made a gluten-free version (she ate hers all too! oink oink) and my kids weren’t feeling adventurous so they made their very own all-cheese pizzas (with the exception of three sweet potatoes on Adelaide’s for two eyes and a smile). I hope you give this sweet potato and sage pizza a try the next time you are in the mood for pizza!
